What You'll Need
Orange
Knife
Oil (Canola or Olive should work fine)

How To Make It
1. Carve your orange using a knife. (For a longer burn time, try to leave more of the orange intact so there is an overhang. Cutting the peel in half, with no overhang, should provide about a 30min burn.)
2. Be sure to keep the stem in tact as it will become your wick.
3. Pour your oil into the orange peel.
4. Light the top of the stem and enjoy!

I've seen this on Pintereest-have you tried it?

There used to be a artsy gift shop (had a lot of metal work pieces) that had olive oil candles-nothing more than the holder,wick and oil.

I would try this but my goofy cats would try to lick the oil while it's burning-that would NOT be good on so many levels.

Neat!  Would the candle just go out on it's own? Or would the peel start burning if you don't watch it?
